At some point all of us run up against the wall called life. More specifically, the wall called the details of life.
When we do, many of us turn to “to do” lists to keep track. Ranging from a simple piece of paper, to a white board, to smart phones, we try to find something to help us make it through the laundry list of things we have to get done.
But none has been, at least for me, as easy to use or as simply elegant as the Clear app.
Reviews from major tech media outlets are very positive for the app as this screen capture indicates.
But I do want to point out why I think it is such an awesome ToDo list app, and, hopefully, convince you to have a look at it.
First, the user interface. This picture and the video below will show you have uncluttered this app is. I have found no smartphone app that is as simply elegant in the user interface as Clear.
Second, the user experience. Clear app leverages every part of the touch gestures which iOS is famous for. With the sole exception of having to type in content, you never need use any thing other than gestures to interact with Clear app. In fact, if you use the dictation function of iOS, you never do have to use anything other than gestures.
Key elements of the app include nested lists. This allows you to generate lists that are specific for your needs, and to combine them in meaningful sorts. You might have a list for long term goals (a bucket list), a list for shopping, a list for work or workouts or personal or school.
In other words, the simple interface and experience facilitates the things you want to do.
For you Android users, there is no Android version, and since the maker is RealMacSoftware, I wouldn’t bet on there being one any time soon.
I hope you will have a look at Clear app, and then let me know what you think.
